On November 8, 1976, the landmark investiture and reception dinner for Les Dames d’Escoffier, led by founder Carol Brock, was held at the French Consulate, welcoming 50 pioneering women as its first members. In the intervening years, lies a tale of dedication in overcoming the enormous gender barriers that existed, as well as persistence in discovering the many qualified professional women who were, in fact, there, but largely invisible.

Our mission is to support women in the worlds of food, fine beverages, and hospitality through education, community service, scholarship, and mentoring.
